Google Workbench and Vernier Software & Technology
Google Workbench is a platform for educators to discover, create, customize, and share quality learning content. Teachers can easily filter lesson ideas by grade level, subject, project duration, and learning standards to find what they need and create assignments for their students with Google Classroom or Clever.
A collection of Vernier Software & Technology NGSS-aligned lessons are now available through the Vernier content channel. This channel provides the ability to integrate data-collection technology into curriculum. You can copy and customize these lessons easily within Workbench and assign with the built-in Google Classroom integration.

Integrate Block-Based Coding
Workbench makes it easy to integrate block-based coding into your lessons, as well. Using the Workbench multi-device programming canvas, you can easily add multiple devices as you build your program–including Vernier sensors! Simply connect the Vernier sensors and other devices like micro:bit and SAM labs blocks using Bluetooth® wireless technology in the Chrome browser and build Blockly programs that make the hardware interact. You can even publish data to Google Sheets.
